Persistent connections using Net::HTTP with a connection pool.
This is based on Eric Holder's Net::HTTP::Persistent libary but uses a connection pool of Net::HTTP objects instead of a connection per thread. C/T is fine if you're only using your http threads to make connections but if you use them in child threads then I suspect you will have a thread memory leak. Also, you will generally get less connection resets if the most recently used connection is always returned.
